About Mark & Janelle Smiley:
Mark’s interests in outdoor recreation have continually evolved since he was a young boy. At the age of twelve, he enjoyed rappelling out of maple trees in the front yard. Now he can be found putting up first ascents on technical 20,000’+ glaciated peaks.
Janelle grew up climbing, skiing and playing in the mountains of Colorado. Her hunger for snow adventures has taken her to Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, France and Italy where she explored and worked as a skiing instructor.
